Why does grass come in different lengths?

It's something I've always wondered, you know?

I asked the man in the Post Office and he said:

"Some grass does not get enough sun so stays short. Some grass gets too much sun and stays short. Other grass gets just enough sun and gets longer. Using Miracle Grow should also give you spectacular growth. This principle also applies to human hair."

He gave me some diagrams to help a bit, but I still don't really understand.

    Yes, I mean they haven't told you how much water to put in the watering can have they? and does it have to be a pink one or what?

    Dougal, never take any any heed to the wise words of any member of An Post. I should know, I work for them. They have not got a clue what they are talking about. Too busy sniffing the glue from the stamps. All the men are bald and should be drinking miracle gro instead of Guinness.

    Its to do with flavour > the longer the grass the blander the taste, hence cows eat short grass coz its more flavoursome

    Each section is mowed in the opposite direction. This causes the grass to be bent slightly. Then the light bounces off it slightly different then the section. This gives that illusion of sections.

    I think it's because pesky ants come and rip off the tops of the grass blades and use them to decorate their homes

    Because there are different grass species.

    Fun fact: grass is in the bamboo family

    The shorter grass is where the dog peed.

    beats me, hunny, have put 5 lots of seed down last year - some of it is long, some of it is short, and some of it is moss - have now dug it all up and decided to have a patio instead
